Our previous basketball hoop did not make the move to West Virginia with us. So, our son received a new one for an early Christmas present. Of course it came in a box with assembly required. My husband took one look at the instructions and passed them off to my son. My son flipped through the pages of the instruction manual, looked at my husband and remarked, 'This is exactly like Legos'. He found the necessary tools and went to work. Within 90 minutes, he had assembled his brand new basketball hoop.
